When veteran RTD bus driver Raul Serrano opened his in-house newsletter more than two years ago to find a caricature of him and a distraught, sombrero-topped rider, he deemed it an affront to all Latinos and demanded a formal apology. His supervisors at the Southern California Rapid Transit District balked. So instead, the district was hit Wednesday with a jury's award of $30,000 in damages for defamation against the 45-year-old bus driver from Rancho Cucamonga.

Three men who allegedly kidnaped a 20-year-old La Puente woman and held her for nearly 10 hours while they sought a $50,000 ransom have been arrested, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said Saturday. The woman, Zoraida Noriega, was freed unharmed early Friday evening after detectives traced the suspects to an East Valley Boulevard motel. They were captured when they tried to drive away from the motel with her at gunpoint, said Deputy Patrick Hunter.

Cartoons mocking Latino and Asian bus riders have appeared in recent editions of an RTD-produced, in-house newsletter, prompting complaints from at least one Latino driver and embarrassing management officials as they try to attract more minority riders. One of the comics, which appeared in a newsletter for employees at a downtown division, shows a skeleton-like, serape-and-sombrero-garbed rider wasting away at a stop as he waits for a bus to arrive on an East Los Angeles route.

Defending champion: Los Angeles Baptist. Top teams: Mary Star (9-1); Serrano (8-1-1); Orange Lutheran (8-2); Valley Christian (8-2); Kilpatrick (8-2); Rosamond (8-2); Ontario Christian (8-2); Big Bear (7-2-1). Dark horse: Montclair Prep (7-1) and Los Angeles Baptist (3-7). Montclair Prep does not play in a league, and might be a mystery to the lower bracket teams it faces. Baptist spent the season adjusting to 22 players lost to graduation and several key injuries.
